plants vs algae, who will come out on top?
alright here is where i stand as of right now. I'm in the process of doing a tank swap. currently running a 20g xtall (20x10x22), and running only 1.4 WPG. I'm swapping to a standard 24" 20G. with the old tank i was limited to only two 14w t8. with this different shape i able to use the 24" 20w fixture which pushes the lighting to 2.4WPG. i have plenty of fast growers, rotala rotundifolia, ludwiga repens (only one stem but more to come once i find more), couple hygro species and lots of tiger val. my planned substrate for this tank is going to be eco complete. i currently am only dosing nutrafin NPK once a week after water changes, with fert spikes under my crypts and swords. so basically my question goes into will my plants be able to survive? or will algae dominate this fight?
EDIT: forgot to mention that im also running one bottle of DIY mix CO2 into a ladder. i will be going to 2 eventually, just have to find a t connection piece.
